Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - Combat Trailer
LEVEL (Czech Republic)Sep 29, 2017Hellblade is a kind of a game you have not played yet. Despite the smaller variability of enemies, it offers such a powerful experience that we have to recommend it. Senua's mind suffers and you suffer with her. Ragnarök is coming. [Issue#277]
Aug 14, 2017Hellblade is one of the game industry’s few genuine dramas – a dark, uncomfortable experience that makes players suffer alongside its protagonist. By intentionally avoiding the standard power fantasy in their designs, Ninja Theory has shined a light on mental illness, an important subject that many people are ill-informed about, and they’ve portrayed it in an immersive manner that no other storytelling medium could. For those up to the challenge, it’s a must-play, and one of the boldest and most important artistic endeavors games have seen in quite some time.
Aug 17, 2017Clocking in at around 6 hours, there isn’t any real replay value unless you’re someone like me who likes to go back to see how the experience changes after I’ve been enlightened with the full picture. While some may claim that it is far too short of a game, I would argue that it is the perfect length for this particular title, and as it retails at half the cost of a typical triple A game at $29.99, it more than justifies its asking price. After all, I certainly don’t think this would have been a better game if it was double the length at twice the cost.
Aug 21, 2017Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a clear example of a game as an art form with a strong message and a complex, layered narrative. It’s true that you’re sort of along for the ride and most of your interactions are through your emotional response to what is depicted rather than through the mechanics of the game, but is that such a bad thing?
Aug 11, 2017Ninja Theory ought to be praised for what it’s achieved – an adult story that’s told like no other, combat that’s skilful and harrowing, unique environmental based puzzles and light, scenic adventuring. It’s just a shame that some of Hellblade‘s gameplay components at times feel forced.
Aug 8, 2017Over the course of its journey, Hellblade keeps its gameplay lean in order to not overstay its welcome. Despite the complexity of the narrative and its presentation, combat only happens when it needs to, and puzzle solving and set-piece moments often drive the story forward to reveal more about Senua's motivations. Which in turn reveals the struggles that torment her, preventing her from moving on.
Dec 19, 2018Great story, great sounds, voice acting, animation, music, graphics, overall design. this game gave lots of emotions (in a good way). OfGreat story, great sounds, voice acting, animation, music, graphics, overall design. this game gave lots of emotions (in a good way). Of course this game isnt without problems (walking walking walking walking ...... MORE WALKING) but i just cannot deny that i loved this game. also, i do not really recommend to play this game if you are 14. this game is not about slashing enemies 24/7 and acting as a superhero. i am surprised to see this kind of game in the market where nearly everything is boring, or not working, or about YEAH DIE EVERYONE BI***ES AHAHHAHAHA FU*K YEAH. very pleased. thank you ninja for this present.… Expand

I've been sure that it's going to be spectacular, I just haven't excepted being shattered to pieces. It has been one hel(l) of a journey. I'd wish that there were an option to erase this memoir, so I could experience Senua's story once again. I'd wish that I could use it indefinitely. It would be perfect if it came up with a clicker. I would push it whenever I'm for some profound feelings of love intertwined with ferocity and fathomless solicitude.
One, albeit gigantic caveat: the unfortunate mental health disclaimer at the game's start-up. Some of Hellblade's puzzles can really make you question your sanity. Because those who have designed them certainly are out of their minds and catatonia seems like the only rescue for their delusions. It would make them unable to spew allegedly "clever" ideas out of their limb-controlling devices. I haven't except Hellblade to be this immersive.

You can see why from the amazing visuals and sound. Senua's probably the best character model i've seen in a game and overall makes great use of the unreal engines new features. Sound is binaural which is great as a schizophrenia simulator but draining nonetheless.
I think the game would be worth more if everything else wasn;t so token. The combat is stiff, repetitive and unchallenging. The puzzles are just time wasters most of the time and the story seems to just repeat the same notes all the way through. There's some great ideas and presentation, shame it's wrapped up in a boring slog of a game.… Expand
